Counter Strike: Global Offensive Trailer

August 26, 2011 // 4 Comments

Counter Strike: Global Offensive will be available in 2012 as a downloadable title for PC, Mac, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. Just as Valve did with Portal 2, Counter Strike GO will feature Steam on PS3 allowing for cross platform play with PC, Mac, and PS3 players all playing together. Xbox is a closed system, so no Steam for 360 players. The PS3 version will feature Move support, and support for a keyboard and mouse, so it won’t be as unfair to all PS3 players who get lumped in with PC gamers. Those of using a Dualshock may have a hard time though, but it’ll be a good challenge. [...]

WWE ’12 – New Predator Technology Trailer

August 18, 2011 // 1 Comment

The above trailer for WWE ’12 shows off all the new visual and gameplay changes that have been made possible with the new Predator technology. From the trailer, you tell that WWE ’12 will obviously be the most authentic looking WWE game to date with all new broadcast camera angles, and rope and ring physics. Gameplay looks a lot smoother and the animations don’t appear as clunky. All great things. Hopefully THQ releases a demo for this game like they did for All Stars, to convince people who say “it looks like SvR 2011” that the game actually plays different. My [...]
